About us

We’re Jak and Aimee, a British couple from opposite sides of the country, Jak’s the northerner from Blackpool, Aimee’s the southerner from Essex. We met at University in Newcastle but ended up living and working in the South.

In 2012, we spent a fantastic year traveling South East Asia, Australia and New Zealand. Fast forward four years and we couldn’t resist the urge for another adventure, this time in Latin America, so we saved the money and made it happen. For the first part of our trip we’ll be spending time in Ecuador then traveling up through Colombia to the Caribbean coast.

WHY ARE WE BLOGGING?

We’re blogging to document our story and spend. Aimee, being a meticulous planner, tracks all of this information anyway and we want to share it. This blog is one of two things to keep us busy on the road, (the other being learning Spanish), so if we can keep it real and keep it up to date, we’ll be happy.
